 WORLD'S SMALLEST FLOWERING PLANT
Some botanists refer to the plant body as a "frond" or "thallus," but these terms are not appropriate because the plant body is not homologous to a leaf or to the bodies of fungi and algae.
An average individual plant is 0.6 mm long (1/42 of an inch) and 0.3 mm wide (1/85th of an inch).
Since the stigma is generally receptive before the anther is mature, a condition known as protogyny, the flower typically requires cross pollination from a different wolffia plant with a mature anther that is ready to shed its pollen.

  Flowering plant
The flowering plants are one of the major groups of modern plants, comprising those whose seeds arise from structures called flowers.
Flowering plants are usually treated as a division, sometimes called the Angiospermophyta or Anthophyta, but now more often called Magnoliophyta after the type genus Magnolia.
The main split among the flowers is between the dicotyledons and monocotyledons, called dicots and monocots for short.

  Flowering plant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Traditionally, the flowering plants are divided into two groups, which in the Cronquist system are called Magnoliopsida (at the rank of class, formed from the family name Magnoliacae) and Liliopsida (at the rank of class, formed from the family name Liliaceae).
The reproductive cells produced by flowers are of two kinds, microspores or pollen grains, are the "male" cells and are borne in the stamens (or microsporophylls), and the "female" cells called megaspores, in which the egg-cell is developed, contained in the ovule and enclosed in the carpel (or megasporophyll).
Of all the families of flowering plants, the Poaceae, or grass family, is by far the most important, providing the bulk of all feedstocks (rice, corn (maize), wheat, barley, rye, oats, millet, sugar cane, sorghum), with the Fabaceae, or legume family, in second place.

 Biennial plant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A Biennial plant is a flowering plant that takes between twelve and twenty-four months to complete its lifecycle.
The next spring/summer the stem of the biennial plant elongates greatly or bolts, flowers, fruits and seeds are produced and the plant then dies.
Flowering can be induced in some biennials without vernalization by application of the plant hormone, gibberellin, but it is rarely done commercially.
